If you still have the fork ears I'll buy them or swap for something you need.

I'll see if I find them, my girl tends to throw away the things that for her are filthy, I suppose this is a common problem that a large part of the population suffers

Hello, as I had a leak in the cap of the pan, I decided to remove it to repair it and look at the chain.

from below I move it easily with a finger upwards, it also has play to the sides, I found some marks that confirm its flight

It is also somewhat dirty inside, I have already bought a chain, I must find out what else to ask for since I am going to open it, I should do the right thing

The 550 has more clearance to the main oil gallery than the 500 so chain has to be really worn to cause bad damage, its the sort of thing uou change if you have to split the cases for another reason

enlarging the photo you can see the chain pins as if they were touching somewhere the plates are black but they are not

I should buy the primary shaft rubbers, the bearings, I still don't know whether to order the transmission ones as well, I don't think they are necessary

Chain pins are that colour because they were that colour originally, same for the plates, they started off that colour.

If your changing the chain, change the damper rubbers as well.

Is the grey marking on the chain just old oil, can it be wiped off with a tissue?

Yes, they are without any doubt, but should I also change the primary gear bearings?

I think the number 19 is the most suffered, but it seems that it is no longer available as an original replacement
